It’s been seven years since Missy last dropped an album, but the multiplatinum rapper, songwriter and producer is gearing up to release a new album later this year. Just last week, Misdemeanor dropped a snippet of her upcoming single, “9th Inning.” The menacing piano-laced track, which also features Missy’s longtime production partner Timbaland, finds the Virginia MC spitting some pretty ferocious bars. “Now I’m in the ninth inning, thought I feel off, ain’t quite finished/ Yeah, I’m about to put my foot in it, talk wit’ it, walk wit’ it, I’m no gimmick,” she spits, before proclaiming 2012 her year.
Be sure to tune in as Missy talks about everything from her musical beginnings in the mid-1990s, her reign in the 2000s and her seven-year hiatus from the booth. Look for the decorated veteran to also weigh-in on the controversial posthumous Aaliyah album that is said to be in the works.
Bad Boy rapper French Montana will also be stopping by with his Coke Boys crew to talk about their upcoming “9000 Watts” video and French’s solo debut album, Excuse My French. The Bronx, New York, representative has already wowed fans with singles like “Shot Caller” and “Pop That,” and next he is looking to drop a collaboration with Nicki Minaj. “It’s just something for the clubs; you know, especially for New York. I feel like it’s big,” he told MTV News.
